I would recommend calling as many dealers as possible in your area and shopping for the best price. You did a great job putting together the numbers. You should simply present the dealers with the invoice price of the car and all options, and say "what's your best price" in % over invoice?
I got a M3 convertible in San Francisco for 5% over invoice. It took some haggling and some of the dealers were less than genuine in their representations. But you can save a lot.
